More is Less

Just a quick post today- sort of a philosophical discussion about ordering tests, medicines, and just providing too much medical care.  I tend to espouse the idea that I should mostly educate and get out of the way.  I spend a lot of time talking people out of tests and medicines, and pointing out that more medical care leads to more problems.

A blog post from one of my favorite primary care docs points this out, in his typical entertaining fashion.  Take a look and see what you think:

I’ve got  a link to his blog in the blog roll to the right-  you might think about following him if you are into reading blogs.  He’s just started a new practice, more of a concierge/direct pay model, which is really interesting to think about and watch him work through the kinks. Enjoy!
